Hero teacher meets tragic end when she steps in to save friend from deranged beau: police

If you or someone you know is the victim of domestic abuse, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233.

A beloved Texas teacher was killed saving her friend from an abusive relationship, according to police, and the alleged gunman is still on the loose.

Dmitri Humphrey, 28, allegedly shot Shantavia Reddick, 26, and her dog to death when Reddick stepped in to protect her friend during an ongoing domestic violence situation Saturday, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

Reddick went to her friend’s house as tensions escalated when her friend tried to leave an abusive relationship with Humphrey, police said.

“Reddick saved her friend’s life, giving her own,” Gonzalez said in a Facebook post.

“Many companies are still doing at-home work or hybrid work and so many employees are still working at home with their abusive partner.”
